    Never had this happen before. I was told to put her down. She is eating and drinking fine. Her leg is alittle stiff but the main problem is I think she was having problem pooping and she has a bloody ball smaller then a golf ball hanging out her rear end. Some one told me that she has internal problems. with this hanging out her rear end I checked on her a few ins ago looks like she pooped a bit more. I don't know what to do. I don't want her suffering but I don't want to put her down if I could of done something to help her.

    I've had three hens attack by a hawk, each time we put antibiotic ointment on the wounds, put some gauze over the wound and then wrap it up with ouchless bandage. All three lived. I hope your hen does too.

    As far as her back, I've had worse and she's living and fine. Hopefully Kathy will be here soon to tell you what to do. My girl got ripped up good by a dog but she's fine now. Hope yours will be fine. Chickens can take a lot more then we realize.

    This usually always works.

    Make sure it does not have Caine in it. (I like Bacitracin)

    Make sure to check the wound daily for infection.

    They can heal alot easier than you may think.

    They have come back from FAR worse than this.

    That is called "prolapsed vent." You can look it up to see how to care for it. In general, it is hard to fix unless done quickly. I will try to find some links.
